So I’ve been having a problem with my chickens. There are two diseases in my flock.


Disease one, AKA: Shrug Disease
Symptoms:
Looks like they are shrugging
Comes on really quick and kills them
Feel really light
Cold feet
Crop isn’t full but they eat/drink

Meds:
Tried Nutridrench, didn’t work
Tried worming, didn’t work

Affects:
5/7 of my hatched at home Ayam Ketawas ranging from 4-7 weeks
A lavender orp i’ve had since she was a chick at 8 weeks






Disease 2: AKA Green Disease
Symptoms:
Bright green poop
Comes slow kills slowly
Droop down
Lethargic
Eats and Drinks.

Meds:
Tried Nutridrench: didn’t work

Affects:
1 7 month old Cochin Rooster
1 4 month old Cochin pullet

I would like help identifying these.
Before I could ask: my dad ordered this:

We suspect “Green” disease is Corccidia.

Can you take in some fresh droppings to your vet for a fecal float to confirm coccidiosis? I haven't heard of either of those diseases, but both sound like possible coccidiosis. Corid is usually a first medication, but sulfa antibiotics are very good as well. If you should lose another chicken, the best way to get a diagnosis is to send the body, keeping it cold, into your state vet for a necropsy. Here is a list of state poultry labs to contact for a necropsy:

Sadly I cannot. I don’t know what my dad’s problem is, but he won’t let me send in a sample.
